GameData Inc. – $4.13/month 1GB RAM or $4.97/month 2GB RAM OpenVZ VPS in Dallas

Tags: , , , Date/Time: April 2, 2014 @ 7:30 am, by Maarten Kossen

GameData IncWe’ve received another offer from Wayne, from GameData Inc. This offer is exclusive to LowEndBox readers and is hosted in Dallas, Texas! GameData is an incorporated entity and Wayne tells me he used to own YDGH together with his old business partner. However, they sold the business and he has been focusing on GameData since 2007! Needless to say, he’s been around for a bit. Their current servers pack E3-1240v3CPUs with 32GB of RAM and 4x 1TB hard drives in RAID10! In addition to this offer (which is the same as last time), it’s possible to upgrade to 2GB of RAM by using the coupon LEB2GB. It will increase the price to $4.97/month but give you 2GB of RAM with the same specifications as the 1GB offer. GameData will also be expanding to Frankfurt, Germany soon.

Dallas, Texas Deal

    It seems that the LEB2GB promo code does not work… is there a reason for that? is it sold out?

    Hey nice offer, do you also have dns server? and how to apply this coupon code, will it be one time or life long coupon?

    April 2, 2014 @ 11:36 am | Reply
    • We do not offer dns servers on vps’s. Coupons are for the life of the service you order.

      @perennate

      Yes thank you. We do allow anything that is legal.

      Also, we are very strict about suspending spammers.

        Hi could you please tell me why my VPS is still not up and running after more than 1month? I sent you guys emails and no response at all.

        I asked for refund and it’s declined by PayPal.

        My invoice number is 47488 paid on 2 April.

        I sent emails to you guys for the VPS status and you guys never replied.

    GameData Inc kept charging me after service was ended, and could not be cancelled since their billing CP was down. Contacted the BBB about it, and they never replied. Stay away.

    • As for the never replying, we have live chat almost always available.. So if you really want to talk to us by all means use the live chat system.

      The only time we usually get a complaint about charging after cancelling is when people forget to cancel their paypal subscriptions. Is this what happened in your case? Either way, as mentioned above use our live chat to discuss further.

    coupon codes not working…
    Additional IPv4 addresses are $1…

    April 4, 2014 @ 5:41 am | Reply
    • Yes the IP addresses are $1 currently. And as for the coupon it does work, you just have to order the right product. One code works for VPS1 and the other code works for VPS2.

      If IP’s being $1 is a deal breaker contact us by live chat with IP Justification for ARIN and we will see what we can do for you.

    Do you offer any kind of DDoS protection? What is your policy on Teamspeak/Mumble? I am looking for a server to host a Teamspeak from, and even tough we have never been DDoS I want to know my options before getting one.

    April 10, 2014 @ 7:57 am | Reply
    • We do allow teamspeak, and as for the ddos attacks the ip will be automatically null routed.

    FEEDBACK: I dont like their service at all, they are the slowest vps that i knew of, worst is, Ive wasted my money investing on their service, worst is the time Ive allocated.

    The lag time is so huge, if you are keeping a server hosted in their system, mind you, you will lost alot. its not even good at all to do business with them.

    • Im sorry you feel that way.

      top – 20:24:35 up 135 days, 23:24, 1 user, load average: 0.95, 0.82, 0.86

      This is current, and is higher load than usual. We have very fast servers. If you were experiencing issues you should have contacted our support to allow us a chance to look into it.

  15. From what I know of Wayne and GameData Inc. – he is a great guy and GameData Inc. is a bunch of great people. If you are having any problems with their service I’m sure they would be glad to help! Just like ‘D’ said, he asked and the answer was immediately there!

      Hi Corey

      Are you sure they are greate guys? I sent them emails asking for my VPS (paid on 2 April) status and they never replied.

      It’s 2 May now, and I don’t have VPS from them yet. I expected they would send me an email at least.

      My refund request was declined by PayPal as the product is not a physical one.

      • I’m sorry Shawn – this isn’t like them. I’ve personally contacted Wayne to see why you haven’t got a response – we’ll see if he responds to me.

      • We have live chat that is available “almost” all day! So if you have tried to reach us, you must not have tried very hard? I apologize for any inconveniences you feel you have experienced.. However as stated above, we are almost always in live chat.. So if you have any difficulties reaching us by support ticket, or support@gamedatainc.com, try Live chat which is available more often than not.

    I ordered the VPS from them and they never honour it. I sent them an email for refund and they just keep silence and no refund at all.

    Keep away from it.

      Then why did you not file a “non receipt ” to PayPal.

      I have done this with about three VPS providers in the past 2 years and have always got the charges reversed.

      I am on #4 right now with PeakServers.

    • Thats odd you should say that.. Because we literally dont have the ability to just remain silent and not answer you! We are in live chat almost ALL DAY! So if you think you have contacted us properly via support ticket or support@gamedatainc.com and were not responded to fast enough then maybe try Live Chat. Which again is almost always online.

  20. Yes one of our servers (that hosts vps’s & our main site) is currently down. We apologize for the inconvenience and we are working around the clock to get the server back online.

    Again, we apologize for the major inconvenience this is causing. Anyone effected by this please contact us once this is resolved for credit.

    Not only is the vps not available (STILL! — I have also prepaid for a year!), no updates are being shared, and they are not answering support mails.

    It was a good host in the beginning (support was a little rude and not very helpful), fast bandwidth locally, and through most of the colocrossing/softlayer endpoints.

    However, this outage has had major impact (days now). I would not recommend this provider. I am pulling the plug, and cutting my loss. I just wanted to share my very negative experience with fellow LEB’ers.

  27. Per our conversations today, you are all setup. The issue ended up being live.com blocking our mails. I will look into that for future contacts.

  28. Thanks again GameData, the issue was with my email service provider… (live.com sucks!!!) but yes I am back up running and VERY happy with the service. These things happen and some times its beyond anyone’s control to make a quick fix. That being said GameData has been the best experience Ive had with a VPS provider to date. Down times happen that’s why you keep current backups. And having an emergency backup plan in place allows you to keep your services up and get back up and running ASAP when things go awry. I will be continuing to recomend GameData to my friends and associates. And I am looking forward to working with GameData in the years to come. Thanks Again!!!!!
